Lucretia Van Horn Art Award Contest

Over the years CEEF has sponsored the Lucretia Van Horn Memorial Art Award Contest for all middle school students of the Cupertino Union School District (CUSD). The award was created in honor of the late Lucretia Van Horn, a gifted artist and educator who worked with other noted artists such as Diego Rivera, Pablo O’Higgins, and David Park to teach others an appreciation for beauty through art. The purpose of the Lucretia Van Horn Memorial Art Award Endowment is to celebrate the arts by recognizing outstanding middle school artists in CUSD.


This year CEEF is pleased to be able to host this contest again and offer the following prizes to its winners: $250 (1st), $100 (2nd), and $50 (3rd). All entries are due to CEEF by 3 PM on May 5 th .
